    Lets see... A 20-ton animal washes up on the private beach of some of the richest people in the entire world and nobody knows what to do about it? Don't rich people have people to do this kind of stuff for them? I mean, how much could it possibly cost to enlist the assistance of a tugboat captain and his merry men to come drag the darn thing out to sea and leave it for the fishes? I mean, good lord!

    If rich people had half as much brain power as they do money, our world would be a far better place.

    Go hire a tugboat Streisand. Or, better yet, go move it with your nose.

    Bet they cant just drag it away or dump it willy nilly. You cant let your dog turd on your lawn lawn in places like that. What kinda permit and variance do you think they would need to dump that at sea? Seems apropos that mother nature has given them such a grand gift considering how much they all love and protect wildlife!

    Probably hard to tell the diff between stinkin whale blubber and stinkin rich Bureaucrats anyhow.

    Im sure whales die in the ocean all the time.

    I dont see a regulation regarding towing a dead one back to its home?

    I dont think they could tow it though. It looks like it would rip and make a mess.

    I suggest throwing millions of maggots on it and waiting a couple weeks or so.

    Note: I own a copy of the Lane County Oregon video- use it when training blasters. They actually used 2000 lbs of 40% dynamite- not a half ton.

    Since the whale was resting on water saturated sand, and water can not be compressed, all of the force of the shot was directed- yep- straight up.

    Granted- it might be low humor- but until you have seen a room full of 50 yr old powder monkeys falling on the floor laughing.....:p

    I grew up rural with lots of old timers around that regularly blew things up to make ponds and clear new land. I remember two of them that had little TNT huts they stored all the stuff in and wasnt ever locked, can you imagine that today?

    Probably Arnold Leuenberger could have told them what would have happened trying to blow the damn thing up and could have figured a way to tow it away with a couple of his old Allis Chalmers Suicide Tractors. It would have been fertilizer on the fields within a week...

    I see it this way. If it is indeed a private beach, it is a private problem. The "victims" on Malibu have the resouces to deal with it. If they prefer, time will solve the problem.

    Sometimes, even for the wealthy, life stinks.
